Well... Drugs are more healthy than alcohol... Weed, at least.

Also your argument that medical marijuana is not necessary because people can just exercise is not entirely accurate. There are people who are sick in such a way that they can't exercise. I was restricted for bedrest for a year. For those in this situation who have extreme pain (which is common amongst these people, because people more likely have a kind of condition that causes pain) or insomnia, etc, marijuana is a useful treatment method.
Second, 'maybe for cancer' is not all that minor. If it's effective against cancer, and studies show it is, then that's a major reason to use it - to treat cancer! I know at least two people in my life that come to mind who have battled cancer, and one of them has already passed away. Marijuana is not in any way extra-evil or bad that it shouldn't be used like other medications such as morphine, valium, SSRI's, prednisone, etc which also affect the brain and other vital organs like the kidney, liver, and heart, albeit in different ways for each. Perhaps it's because I've been through all sorts of medications under the sun, but marijuana - which I've also taken - isn't unique in any way. It's in fact, inferior to surgery medications that are entirely legal.
Third, please don't go about telling people how easy it is to cure disorders. I know you mean well, but people don't cure their sleep disorders with Google however rational it may seem to you it should be. No web advice is a replacement for actual treatment or medication. I've spent countless mornings scouring the internet for effective sleep help, and it was never 'easy' like that.

Yes, overpriced. My basement serves me better.And have you ever been to a gym?
There you go again. But now you're making obvious that you're basing your views off the assumption that most people would abuse their right to smoke and if we're talking for the sake of getting to sleep, I think you're over estimating how much would be necessary.I guarantee you 20 or 30 dollars is cheaper than what most people spend in a month on Marijuana. Besides, you don't even have to go to a gym. Pick up a sport, run or just do exercises at your house. You don't need a gym to do exercise lol.
Probably not quite as ironic as you may be hoping."Get learned" lol, kind of ironic.
Well, maybe you should take the time to read up on matters for which you feel it necessary to post opinions on.Funny how you keep posting stuff about what I said like 8 post ago, unlike you maybe, I don't have the time or the want to read 30 pages about marijuana. I'll try my best to "get learned" though LOLOL

I don't care what you tell me, I'm not reading 30 pages lol, I don't care enough too.
Sorry to tell you Sunny, but "get learned" isn't correct. Yes, learned is the past tense of learn, but that doesn't make it correct. Read this sentence out loud. "Hey tom, you get learned for that test tomorrow?" Does that sound correct to you lol. omg... why am I even trying if you think get learned is correct, I might as well just give up.
If you're intelligent enough to understand here is why it is incorrect. Yes, learned can be an adjective, but re-read his sentence. You won't find any verb in it, which makes the whole sentence incorrect. I'm using to reading sentences with verbs, so I mistook it as one and not an adjective. Either way, if it is a verb or adjective, it's incorrect.
Anyway, enough about Chedwick's grammar, what about my point about medical marijuana?

If it were legalized it would need to have restrictions
Those kind of cases where you're unable to move and in a lot of pain weed would be a good alternative. For just a simple sleep disorder there are better ways to treat / cure it.
From what I remember reading, I thought Marijuana didn't really cure cancer it just helped patients deal with the radiation treatments. I could be wrong, but I just remember seeing that somewhere.
Well curing sleep disorders was easy for me, I was having trouble falling asleep at night, looked up ways to help found exercise being one that I was able to do. I started running almost every day, or at least doing some physical activity, but it started with running. This worked perfect for me, I sleep like a baby every night now. Exercise actually cures a lot of different things that people would be surprised about.
That was the only grammatical correction proposed by Word.Originally Posted by Word2003
Even if it wasn't grammatically correct, what's wrong with injecting a bit of irony? It could have been done to keep a rebuttal light hearted as I will often do. Doesn't always work, but we are discussing legalizing pot which does often affect how we talk. Why I remember a time...
Fantastic job at derailing this thread, folks. Marvelous. This isn't the place to educate others on their grammar, nor the place to discuss other trivial matters. If you continue bickering you will receive an infraction; posting a lengthy off-topic post while adding a small on-topic sentence won't save you from one, either.
Don't comment on this post nor any other off-topic post after this.

Seriously, drugs are evil. Marijuana included. Do you have any idea how many are hopelessly addicted to Marijuana?
not much is known about this trainer
this is my favorite kind of post. DRUGS ARE EVIL!!!!!!! Makes me laugh every time.
Yes, we are all so hopelessly addicted to weed. Let's drown the rehab clinics with our insane addiction and give less attention to the people who truly need help because they are actually addicted to a hard drug.
I beg to differ that marijuana is addicting, at least in a physical stance. I used to smoke every day about a year ago for a few years. I go months without the drug, living my life happy and perfectly fine. I don't even think about "omg I need to smoke a joint right now or I'm gonna die." Marijuana 'withdraw' doesn't include painful aches and turning into a psychopath when you don't have any atm, like hard drugs including heroin, coke, crack. And also putting alcohol and nicotine in there as well because they can be extremely addicting to a horrible state.
I do agree that you can get upset that you don't have any weed, but you don't go through a withdraw. A true withdraw. Drug addiction is serious. Saying that marijuana is hopelessly addicting is not serious at all, just a stupid opinion.
I'm sorry if this was just a troll post, because you only have 1 post.. unless you just made an account to say that drugs are evil. If you're trolling, you're pretty bad at it, js.

Most of my friends smoke the weed. I don't. I find no problem with it, but when weed messes with, say, work, that's what drives me insane. People I work with smoke a lot of weed, at work too. They come in late because of it too. I think it should be illegal for situations like that. No jail time though. Just a fine.
Ah, the old "you disagree with me. you must be a troll" mentality. Drugs are evil, I have seen it first hand. Do you know how many people die over marijuana every day? I wouldn't expect the typical fiend such as yourself to understand anyway.

How many people are hopelessly addicted to marijuana? How many people die over it every day, and how does it kill them? Give us some hard data here.
And what differs it from a pain medication like...oxycontin, for instance? What makes marijuana 'evil'?
I know a lot of people that are hopelessly addicted to marijuana. Marijuana is not chemically addictive like many drugs, but it is addictive for a whole host of other reasons.
Again, all kinds of things are addictive. And I for one do not support our current prohibition on marijuana. But there are a lot of people in this thread minimalizing its addictiveness, and it is addictive. I don't think we have to minimalize marijuana's dangers in order to end its prohibition.
HOPELESSLY addicted? Maybe somewhat addicted, but not hopelessly addicting.
Former Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders characterized marijuana succinctly on CNN recently, while declaring her support for legalization: “Marijuana is not addictive, not physically addictive anyway.”
In this view, the paradigm for addiction is heroin: the shaking, puking heroin junkie who can’t quit because the withdrawal sickness is impossible to bear. Because marijuana cessation is not linked with such severe symptoms, the drug isn’t seen as physically addictive. And considering that most people view physical addiction as uncontrollable, but psychological addiction as manageable with proper willpower, marijuana tends not to be regarded as addictive in general.
Overall, then, addiction rates for marijuana are significantly lower than for other drugs, both legal and illegal. What about withdrawal symptoms? “You see mood effects, irritability. Food intake decreases. There are sleep disruptions. It looks like nicotine withdrawal,” says Carl Hart, associate professor of clinical neuroscience at Columbia University, who has studied marijuana withdrawal. “You can actually die from alcohol withdrawal. Heroin withdrawal you can’t really die from; it’s more like the flu. Marijuana withdrawal is annoying, but it isn’t life threatening.” (Full disclosure: Hart and I are currently collaborating on a new book.)
As Dr. Elders also said on CNN, marijuana is nontoxic. You can fatally overdose on alcohol, heroin or cocaine, but the only way a dose of marijuana will kill you is if someone crushes you under a bale of it.
there you go people. I'm not denying it's somewhat addicting in the crave sense.. but really, it's not going to kill you.
I know a lot of people that are hopelessly addicted to: Fast food, COD: MW3, the smell of paint, eating rocks.
Ban ALL the things!

I think huffing paint is illegal.
Coming from a family with a history of drug and alcohol addiction, I do think marijuana should be legalized. I have seen people use the drug and it is much less scary than someone being drunk or on pain killers, which are both legal and easily attainable.
There is no reason for a rational, scientific society to not legalize it. There is no reason in the world as to why cigarettes/tobacco and alcohol should be allowed, even adored, but marijuana illegal. Ridiculous in general how it is not.

Yeah, it should be legal. The government is literally prohibiting you from experiencing certain feeling by outlawing drugs and having such a demoralizing attitude on them.
